Whats a joke about it? I don't know why you people come in here to just bitch about Apple. If you didn't like your iphone just shut up and take it back. Everyone who bought an iphone is still within the 14 day rule to return it. Go get your money back and get something else, believe me Apple wont suffer for a few hundred thousand people returning a phone they will most likely try to buy later in the year.

It never ends, it's like they have nothing better to do. I've even read post, where people say they do it cuz it's fun smdh. Apples making bank, and they bash them cuz it's fun? Going on a date with a girl is fun, working out is fun, playing sports is fun. Sitting on tech sites all day to try causing trouble, is stupid. Bring on the hater comments.

I would just like to point out that my comments are more out of spite of the individual I'm responding to who's guilty of the same crap you're complaining about in different articles.

Darkk, you used to do the same trolling of Android posts way back. Just because you've switched up because you got a few warnings, don't try to act like you're a saint now. And you're best buddies with the biggest Android and BlackBerry troll on PA. Mxy. I don't see you complaining about his trolling. And I'm quite sure you never will. It's amazing that the very same iFans complaining about Android fans trolling Apple, are the very same ones that troll every Android post. Such hypocrites.

I don't troll android articles, and never have. I don't come to this site to start trouble. I'm not a little kid.

You sound like an idiot. I guess that's just your mentality, although, a man of your age should be more refined. Let's not go back and point out all the hypocrisies you paraded on this site. Maybe you're the one who doesn't have anything better to do, besides get all defensive over descent.

People come on here to complain so that readers who have new phone upgrades or getting a phone for the first time don't waste the 200$+ it takes to get an iphone when then can get a better phone for 200 or less that makes a big difference to people that'd not have,money to just blow on something they will be using daily.... Does that make more sense lol

No that's actually stupid. People know what they want, and are gonna buy it anyway, so just let em.

It's probably moreso with an article titled "Are you having problems with iOS 8.0.2" that you see negative comments. Some ifans invite these comments. I'm sure you can't count on 10 hands the number of times you've seen Android referred to as "half baked, laggy, fragmented, buggy, rushed, etc." Heck, you've done it on this article. So, when Apple has a problem, people are going to be quick to jump on it. Especially when those same people who comment on Android say that "apple takes it's time and gets it right and it just works." It may be exaggerated, but that's because of all the rhetoric Jony Ive, Steve Jobs and Apple fans spread about every other device.

Never got to download 8.0.1, and didn't have a lotta issues with 8.0 outside of safari crashing here and there, and reach ability not working a couple times. 8.0.2 fixed those though. Great, but not perfect but software.

Dark, did you get Swift key already?

Posts: 31083; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Yes, the only thing I don't like about it is no speech to text ability. Other than that it rocks.

What theme are you using? Also I heard a lot of people don't like that it syncs to the cloud, afraid of privacy issues.

If by themes, you mean colors, I didn't know I could change them. If I'm wrong, please enlighten me, so I can check em out bro?

A few hiccups i encountered when i purchased the iPhone 6 128gb model IOS 8.0 was 1- Apps wouldn't sync from my iTunes 11.4 and shadowed apps on the phone only (I synced with macbook air) 2- Randomly some apps would crash like App Store, settings app and whatsapp (Although rarely) 3- My phone restarted once while making a call 4- Some apps like LinkedIn and Whatsapp are resized and look blurry and weird 5- The autocorrect suggestions are way behind android. 6- Slow Wifi (Takes forever to browse) 7- Really weak Battery compared to my dad's htc m8 After the update some issues like crashing and syncing are resolved apart from that the other issues although minor remain issue 1,2 and 3 resolved (so Far) 4,5,6 and 7 (Still waiting)

Do you use Swiftkey? The autocorrections are getting better once Swiftkey gets to know you. I'm not sure the iOS versions works in a similar way though.

63. Sid91 unregistered

I installed Swiftkey and after granting the keyboard full access, I was able to Swype but the auto correction stopped working for some reason, haven't tried it after the update though. I was talking about apple's default keyboard.

Major problem after upgrading to iOS 8.0.2 - my home 802.11g (2.4Ghz) unusable when I try to use my iPhone 4s (all other devices, as Windows, Linux, PlayAtation 3 are affected), the same when I use my iPad mini 2 on 802.11g (802.11n 5 Ghz is ok). So at the end - iOS 8.0.2 just killed my home WI-FI it just f..ed out everything :(((( - have to disable WI-FI on my iPhone 4s and use 802.11n only on iPad mini.

My iPhone 5 was fine with the 8.0 update and its going great with the 8.0.2 update :^)

in my case it depends what type of network (WIFI) you are using, 2.4 Ghz (802.11g) is broken 5 Ghz (802.11n) looks like ok. But, the major problem is, that ALL devices on 802.11g in my home network (Windows, Linux, old MacBook) are affected, i.e., none of them can access anything locally or on internet :(

Wow! Has Apple been hanging around HTC or something. They usually don't suck like this. Sure they overcharge but usually they dumb down things enough to prevent any issues. I guess the heat from Android is causing them all sorts of issues. The more Android features they copy, the less stable and smooth IOS gets. Hmm...

Cannot say anything about HTC, I'm an "apple" fun (maybe was as of now). What sucks is that I cannot downgrade to 7.1.2 anymore - signing closed last Friday and I was stupid enough to trust 8.0.2 descriptions to swallow it. Opened a case with apple and have an appointment with "geniuses" on monday on that.

No problems so far with 8.0.2 on my iPad Air. I had issues with 4-5 fingers gestures and battery life on iOS 8.0 but now everthing is back to normal.
